String of Pearls
What's not to love about a good looking String of Pearls? Getting used to growing String of Pearls may take some time, but once you've got it you'll be glad you made the investment. Arguably, an iconic plant from the 70's, String of Pearls are known for their unique pea like shaped leaves that hang from a tiny stem. These fast growing plants are gorgeous spilling over hanging pots.
Native to Africa, Senecio rowleyanus is a groundcover. For care indoors, they do well in a very bright room with a mixture of indirect and direct light. Depending on the container as well as the environment, String of Pearls may need to be watered every 7 to 14 days. In the summer, it will be closer to 7 and in the winter it will scale on back. Do not water if the soil feels moist at all and allow it to dry out a couple inches before watering again. If the leaves look flat it may need more water. If they look shriveled, it could be over or under watering. Check the soil and if it is moist it is too wet.
Propagating this plant is easy and encouraged.
